There's no denying, Vivica is always ahead of her time!

    With her daughter Summer Miami in her growing belly, Yung Miami's pregnancy glow captured our attention at the 2019 BET Awards. The City Girls rapper opted for a shimmery gold jumpsuit, covered in fabulous metallic sequin, to enhance her skin’s natural radiance. This year, the City Girls are nominated for Best Group and we can’t wait to see what looks they’ll be rocking.
